"A parable about a thriving community guided by elders on the fictional island of Kallimos provides the vision behind the author's real-life efforts in the Eden Alternative and Green House programs to replace medical-model nursing homes with healing communities". - Red Deer College
"The parable in this book was previously published with minor differences as a hardcover book titled Learning from Hannah. Portions of the back matter appeared in What Are Old People For?"--T.p. verso.
